The Anatomy of Mappalicious – 2015

I’ve already posted an article listing the 10 most-read pieces on Mappalicious for 2015. On that note, I’m happy to announce that I did reach my goal of getting +100,000 pages views for the year. 2016, I want to see at least 200,000. That’s a stretch goal, but who knows what will happen. 🙂

So, here are some further stats for 2015.

How did people land on my blog?

Who brought traffic to Mappalicious
Clearly, Facebook brought the most traffic, and I’m pretty sure that a big chunk of that came from the Positive Psychology group. I also would like to thank Seph Fontane Pennock of PositivePsychologyProgram.com for being the only referrer to make the top 10 that’s not a social media site or search engine.

Where do my readers live?

Geography of Mappalicious readers
Most of my readers are from the USA, and additionally, some Commonwealth members make up big chunk (UK, Canada, Australia, India). Happy to see that my home country Germany made No. 2 even though the blog is written in a foreign language.

What keywords were my readers searching for?

Mappalicious search terms
Unfortunately, most search keywords are not disclosed. Other than that, one can see that a lot of people were looking for information on psychological constructs (hopefully, leading them to this page). Really happy to see Emilia Lahti, the Queen of Sisu, making this list.

Most people went to Twitter, probably because they had been reading this list of some 100 Positive Psychology profiles to follow. Robert Biswas-Diener, co-author of The Upside of Your Dark Side, got the most clicks. Additionally, a lot of people went straight to Amazon,* hopefully buying tons of books. These three books received the most clicks:
